Flinders Ranges 5-6

My shutter couldn’t stop for a moment.


  1. They're eye-poppingly beautiful photos, Joan. No wonder you were snap-happy.

  2. The second photo is so interesting to me: the top half, set against the bluest sky and the bottom half with the orange earthy background, and the tree caught between spaces.

  3. Love the sunlight on the mountain tops and the bottom composition.

  4. I know the feeling, but you have more restraint than me when it comes to posting. Funny I have been following your posts, I kept thinking, I would love to go there one day.A friend asked me the other day if we'd like to go to lake Eyre. We have booked to go in November. We visit Wilpena Pound on the way. Yoohoo. Lovely shots!

  5. Diane, you will enjoy it immensely however I do hope you are travelling in early November. The summers are very very hot. I've been to the Flinders in December and won't be going back again at that time of year.

    As for restraint ... I am making a every week of the trip last a month so I am not so sure it's true.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

Book Now

Over the road from the rose gardens in Bendigo, a beaut second hand bookshop.
